Soba Master Tatsuru Rai demonstrates his craft


You might be asking yourself WTF is soba? Well, allow me to explain… Soba are basicly flat noodles made from buckwheat and wheat flours, used in Japanese cookery. And now you know what soba is. 😀 Anyway, Tatsuru Rai is the owner and chef of Sobatei Rakuichi in Niseko, Hokkaido. He operates the 12-seat restaurant, considered one of the world’s great soba houses, with his wife Midori. He mixes, kneads, and cuts all of the buckwheat to order. He was the first person to appear on stage at the fourth annual MAD Symposium, in Copenhagen. Instead of giving a speech, Tatsuru demonstrated his craft in complete silence.

Thanks alot soba Master Tatsuru Rai, now I’m hungry 🙁
